Book Review: The Tyranny of Merit

The Tyranny of Merit
by Michael Sandel
Review by Livvy
There have been many discussions and debates over recent years about the rise of meritocracy and what its role in society is. Sandel writes a compelling and intelligent critique, asking readers to consider the consequences of systems in which some are able to achieve the highest success, while others are left at the bottom. This book is absolutely fantastic – Sandel is one of the most crucial thinkers of our time!

For fans of Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point and Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens.
